Men do suffer from depression. I resigned from my government job of 15yrs, invested pension money in four business that failed, got divorced after a 20 year relationship and that triggered my depression that was traced back to my childhood. I do relapse and still attend therapy.
Guys it is noble to get help, we are living in difficult times, there is an expectation that men should do well irrespective of the economic conditions worsened by the pandemic. Many guys are struggling and dying inside. There is nothing to be ashamed of, get help 🙏🙏🙏
It was sick of faking smiles in public, I was sick of letting my kids and myself down, I was sick of feeling like a failure and I was sick of crying myself to sleep every night and I wanted the pain to go away, but it couldn’t. My mind and body were tired and it was 3am.

JK Rowling is trans-phobic, a betrayal of Harry Potter's message. #RIPJKRowling means the author who brought us hope is dead, not the person. She's a death eater. A thread @HarryPotterFilm #TransLivesMatter
Dumbledore's message:…
#Gryffindor (red & gold) is connected to fire; #Slytherin (green & silver) to water; #Hufflepuff (yellow and black, representing wheat & soil) to earth; & #Ravenclaw (blue & bronze; sky & eagle feathers) to air. #RIPJKRowling but #HarryPotterLives… Image

Let’s talk about mental health. And today, I want to focus on depression. Depression is a common mental health problem that involves a low mood and a loss of interest in activities #MentalHealthMatters #DepressionIsReal
A common type of depression is the High Functioning Depression. It's the term that has been adopted to describe those living with a mental illness that is almost undetectable. It isn’t an actual diagnosis, it’s just more catchy than the real diagnostic term, “dysthymia” is.
Dysthymia (also called Persistent Depressive Disorder) is described in the DSM as “depressed mood for most of the day, for more days than not, as indicated by either subjective account or observation by others, for at least two years

Please listen and listen carefully It has helped me a lot
My worse day with depression (when I wanted to commit suicide) was also my best day. I couldn't take anymore. It was a beautiful sunny summers day the sun was beaming down, not one cloud in the sky everyone in their
Summer dress. Yet I sat looking out the window all I could see was darkness, cold, everything was bleak everything was horrible but the radio played summer jolly songs, I could take no more.
So I left the house to walk up to my mother' grave 3 mile away out in the country
I had water with me and enough pills to cure a city. I was going up to talk to my mum and dad, take the pills and lie down on the grave beside them and wait for the sadness, the gloom and darkness to be all over once and for all. I had left notes in the house for care of my pets

Lita! Lita! Please wake up!” I screamed holding her lifeless body.
“Mum, you’ve killed her. I guess you’re happy now.” Bola said wryly as tears streamed down her eyes.

“Take this.” She said handing me a note.
It read.
“Mum, All efforts to make you happy have proved futile. I guess my corpse will bring you joy.
Signed: A broken child.”
My reaction.
A cold chill ran down my spine. Flashes of my past actions came in quick succession.

Fell into a 90s/00s #suicide anthem music loop this afternoon and it reminded me of how depressed I have been in the past and how depressed I am now, again, and how much we still don't discuss #depression in this society.
I wrote this a couple years ago.
It's a good piece on writers & suicide, with an emphasis on #LGBT suicides because we kill ourselves more (thanks #homophobia/#transphobia)than str8 people.

Society still romanticizes #depression instead of treating it.
Theme song for cutters everywhere.
Raise you hand if you thought you were the only one with razor blades in your pocket for...years.
